What's all around us that are obviously happening are mind-bogling.

Please take heed what every leaders in the world are doing, where they're going, what

they're up to and what they're saying in the public.

Below is an email I received that I can't ignore after my slumber.


This is enlightening. Lest you think it was written by some right-wing kook, David

Kaiser is a respected historian whose published works have covered a broad range of

topics, from European Warfare to American League Baseball. Born in 1947, the son of a

diplomat, Kaiser spent his childhood in three capital cities: Washington D.C. , Albany ,

New York , and Dakar , Senegal . He attended Harvard University , graduating there in

1969 with a B.A. in history. He then spent several years more at Harvard, gaining a PhD

in history, which he obtained in 1976. He served in the Army Reserve from 1970 to 1976.

He is a professor in the Strategy and Policy Department of the United States Naval War

College and has previously taught at Carnegie Mellon, Williams College and Harvard

University . Kaiser's latest book, The Road to Dallas, about the Kennedy assassination,

was just published by Harvard University Press.

History Unfolding

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books on history that have

been published in six languages, and I have studied history all my life. I have come to

think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is simply a

banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are

merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper


Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it

feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it.. Yes, a perfect storm may

be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving

for about ten to fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to

people we know they can never pay back? Why?

(JCS: Re above and below, I say in order to severely wound our country and our economy,

and reduce our will to resist.)

We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight

by anyone, has "loaned" two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past

few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our

money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the $700 billion we all argued about so

strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are

the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a

government of "we the people," who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently


We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach

our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving.

Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are

not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity.


We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (violently in

California over a proposition that is so controversial that it simply wants marriage to

remain defined as between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing

possible just a decade ago?) We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing

unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then

mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana

republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major

industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security

is nearly bankrupt, as is medicare and our entire government. Our education system is

worse than a joke (I teach college and I know precisely what I am talking about) - the

list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth.. It is potentially 1929 x ten...

And we are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the

same religion, who, in turn, cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they

have the opportunity to do so.

And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything about, who has

never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla , Alaska . All of

his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of

employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not

downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a

mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders)?

No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand

he answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe are more important.)

Mr. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change. Why?

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.

This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in

his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines,

push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power

structure. Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same

nation again.

And that is only the beginning..

As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to experience what the

ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the "savior" was

a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German

knew next to nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated with groups

that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his

way onto the political stage through great oratory. Conservative "losers" read it right


And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he

was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned and waved a lot. And people, even

newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his "brown shirts" would bully and

beat them into submission. Which they did - regularly. And then, he was duly elected to

office, while a full-throttled economic crisis bloomed at hand - the Great Depression.

Slowly, but surely he seized the controls of government power, person by person,

department by department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children of German citizens

were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught

exactly what to think. Later, they were required to do so. No Jews of course,

How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the jobless, money to

the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial complex. He did it by

indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages,

better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe

, and across the world. He did it with a compliant media - did you know that? And he did

this all in the name of justice and .... . .. change. And the people surely got what

they voted for.

If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It's all there in the history books.

So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and were shouted

down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston Churchill pointed out the

obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet

Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was

right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not listened to.

Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most culturedcountry in Europe .

It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet,

in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency)

it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning

children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.. All with the best of

intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I

can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me

cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm

of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and

ignoring what is transpiring around me..

I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at me, others laugh,

or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To some degree, perhaps I am. But I have never

been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe-and why I

believe it.

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our vote in the next

I fully understand and believe what he is saying. This has been largely pointed out on ATS via various threads. Me can only wonder when will other people start to notice.

Obama was the perfect man to be brought to the masses, and how gullible the masses are. Only time will tell on this.

There are some big differences between Obama and Hitler though. Absent from President Obama are Hitler's hate, racism, militancy, bitterness and victim complex.

I'm not sold yet, I haven't seen this horrible dark side that everyone on the extreme right is talking about with Obama. What I have seen is just a very popular president, the same things being said about the astronomical rise to be embraced by the masses has happened before too, with a man named Ronald Regan.
